Band of Horses ‘Compliments’ Free Video
Having just â€œkilled itâ€ at SXSW, according to the New York Times, Band of Horses, the Low Countryâ€™s premier rock nâ€™ roll outfit, release their third full length LP, entitled ‘Infinite Arms’, on May 18th through Columbia Records.
The band have made a video for the song ‘Compliments’ available as a free stream and download via their website, bandofhorses.com.
Produced by Band of Horses with additional production from Phil Ek and mixed by Dave Sardy, the songs on ‘Infinite Arms’ project the essence of the different locales across America that became the setting for the recording and songwriting process behind the album. The rich musical heritage of Muscle Shoals, AL, the sublime beauty of Ashevilleâ€™s Blue Ridge Mountains, the glamorous Hollywood Hills and the vast Mojave desert all influenced the sounds on ‘Infinite Arms’ and helped yield the groupâ€™s most focused and dynamic recordings to date.
The serene woods of Northern Minnesota and the bandâ€™s native Carolinas inspired the songwriting, lending the compositions an air of comfort and familiarity.
Band of Horses is Ben Bridwell, Creighton Barrett, Ryan Monroe, Tyler Ramsey and Bill Reynolds. Long time touring members of the group, ‘Infinite Arms’ marks the recording debut of Ramsey and Reynolds, while Barrett and Monroe graced the last album, ‘Cease to Begin’.
Through touring together in support of ‘Cease to Begin’ and during breaks in the ‘Infinite Arms’ recording process, the band have become a cohesive force with all members making invaluable contributions to the unmistakable sound that founder Bridwell has crafted since the bandâ€™s inception.
